PECOTA foresaw Ian Kinsler, Orlando Hudson and Kelly Johnson. Talk about hitting the nail on the head on second basemen. Except BJ Upton. Since I am a firm believer in the wonders of PECOTA those guys didn't surprise me too much and I drafted all of them.

I have to say Bonds hands down. I expected a little bit between 1st half and 2nd half last year. Not this. Runner up- Upton. I don't think most people expected the average to be there.

I am going with Kelly Johnson. I knew he would be good, but had no idea it would be this good.

You guys were surprised about Kinsler? What about his season last year didn't you guys like? He's a stud.

And who's the wise guy who picked Francoeur? :P

I agree. I wasn't surprised by Kinsler.

Rowand surprised me.

Nope - Kinsler's no surprise. To me, Aaron Hill stands out there.
